~varsity volleyball (4 years) ~hospital volunteer (1.5 years adult and ped ICU) ~clinical research (part time during last 6mo of college, and full time now) testing Herpes simplex vaccine and testing immunogenicity (work with patients and in lab). ~violin in HS and christmas orchestra in college (all years) ~shadowing an ICU pediatrician one shift/week (9 months so far)
Update 8/9/06: Decided to add a couple more reach schools. I am interested in rural med (yep, grew up in rural Idaho) and OB/GYN so I thought Duke and Mayo (both in smaller towns) would be a good fit. Also adding Brown because it sounds like Providence would be a cool place to live.
